windows (Archived) with registry hack, sign in without password

Recommended Posts

After sign out Evernote win 4, normally you need enter ID and password to re sign in Evernote.

But with registry hack, we can easily bypass the ID/password screen.

Only one step is necessary:

modify the "LastLogin" key value as the user ID, in [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Evernote\Evernote], and Evernote will open the specific local database directly.

It's not good for multi-users on one PC,

but on the other hand, it's helpful for those who cannot connect internet after sign out Evernote.

PS: One user (keeds) reported this issue on my blog, after my test, it's true. Full detail can be read in Chinese: http://xbeta.info/evernote-05.htm

This still works. If that registry key is set, Evernote appears to log in automatically, even if you changed your password between Evernote launches.

Maybe I am missing something, but I would think the solution is: don't make the registry modification.

Yes, you're missing something. This is a potential security risk, if all it takes is one small regedit to bypass the login prompt.
